by a government that are too small is just not true. in fact, the major cause of our recent downturn is the housing crisis created by reckless government policies and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard-working middle-class taxpayers is an idea that has failed every time it has been tried. >> democrats on the other hand gave senator rubio low marks for similar comments. just about the same time, 10:31. >> presidents in both parties from john f. kennedy to ronald reagan have known that our free enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity. but president obama he believes it is the cause of our problems. that the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. and therefore, as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. >> with independents, senator rubio scored low marks at 10:40 when he spoke about the second amendment. >> of course we face other challenges, as well. we were all heart

of the federal government, of federal spend in. and so that is one of the challenges that the republican leadership has and does right now when you get to the end of the day. i think the whole idea of a deal at the 11th hour, if you believe speaker boehner, it is not going to happen. the clip you played from mitch mcconnell, the off ramp, see how it plays in the house, the way the founders said it would originally happen. we may bump up against march 1st, and they're not done. >> real quick, when we talk about the budget, climate, any issues we face, the republicans controlling the house, the democrats, obama has been president for four years. none of us are going away. we're either going to find ways to overcome our differences on the questions or we'll be stuck until the next presidential election. >> thank you very much, ron bronstein's dana bash, other news in syria right now. both sides in the ongoing war are claiming victories. but the people are still falling victim to huge amounts of violence. in one area, residents are returning after fleeing the relentless attacks. and the scar

is the governing body, a great place to go to find out information. but in general, as i was saying, this is such a rare incident that i think for people who go on regular cruise, every the 14 ships of carnival canceled, i've heard those pople are already rebooking their cruises. so people who are regular cruiser, they are committed to cruising. for people who haven't done it before, they're skittish. however what i'm super impressed by and what we've heard over and over again is how well carnival has hammed the situation. as you said, it is a pr nightmare for any company, but they've come out very forthcoming about what they're doing, giving them their money back, giving them credits toward a future cruise, giving them $500 in cash per passenger. and that is very much beyond what they need to do. >> all right. well, good for them. sounded like the crew did a really good job of trying to help them get through that difficult five days. i'm not a cruiser myself, but i'm willing to give it another shot. >> well that's good to hear. and actually incredibly this might be a good time to l

unintended consequences of government overreach. what's going on, chief -- our cnn national political correspondent jim acosta is here. you've been looking at the reaction since the speech. what's going on? >> wolf, this was a big moment last night. it may be moving votes. what was widely seen as an emotional high point, it may have also been a turn turning point in the debate over gun control. it was a moment carefully orchestrated for maximum emotional impact. as former congresswoman gabby giffords, the parents of slain teenager hideya pendleton and other victims of gun violence looked on, president obama called for a vote. >> they deserve a vote. gabby giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. >> one day later there are indications on capitol hill that the president may get it. >> we don't need a cheer leader. >> even as mr. obama's top republican critics, senator lindsey graham made the case that the current background checks needs to be strengthened before expanded. answered the president's call. >> will you personall

we asked. and rubio scored highest when he talked about big government. watch this. >> and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hardworking middle class taxpayers, that's an old idea that's failed every time it's been tried. more government isn't going to help you get ahead, it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities, it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas, new businesses, and new private sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. >> all right. you might have noticed senator rubio needed a drink of water, taking a break -- everybody's talking about it. the way he reached over for the water bottle caused all kinds of things, buzz on the internet, watch. >> nothing has frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. the choice isn't just between big government or big business, what we need is an accountable, efficient, and effective government that allows small and new businesses to create more middle class jobs. >> look, i

the government from doing that in times of emergency. we all hope we don't come to the situation where we have something like katrina that breaks down all law enforcement. we all hope that none of us are attacked by an armed intruder, that no one who runs a small business is robbed, that no woman is raped, but those things happ happen. what i was objecting to was the rush to pass legislation without really debating it or looking into it. there are ways to deal with the things he wanted to deal with, but by just writing something in the dark of night and ramming it through a legislature and signing it is not a good way to develop policy in a democratic society. >> i agree with you that a debate is necessary and a debate should be had and a conversation should be had, but it does seem like both sides are using emotion. >> it's an emotional issue. i don't deny that. both sides do use emotion. the question is what is the purpose of what you're trying to do? the president would like to get these things that he wants done done very quickly, done by the congress without really looking at them. and we

unveiled his new early education plan. amy, i'll talk to but this first. how does this new government-funded plan if over with conservatives? tough to argue, right? >> well, no, because it's a question of whether or not it's the federal government's role to be involved in education or a state function. a lot of conservatives believe it's a state function. education is only funded by the federal government by about 7%. i think in a way the president could get buy in on his pre-k plan is if he were to stug as a school choice program -- suggest it as a school choice program. parents could have vouch force send their child to any pre-k program of their choosing, i think you might see conservatives backing that. >> yeah. the argument may be that the funding is not going in the correct place and maybe won't help as many kids as planned. maria, what's your take? >> here's the issue with what amy said. first of all, it is what the president proposed is a partnership with the states where the states would be in control of this. that's exactly what he's talking about. and secondly, republicans

white streaks. what the russian government believes happened was that it was a fairly large-sized meteor, hitting the atmosphere, partially breaking up, then showering out across a very wide region. that would explain why the injuries, the damage is being reported across a very wide area. most of the damage, we are told, is broken or shattered glass, windows that exploded at the time that this explosion was heard, and most of the injuries are also certainly a result of that shattered glass. the russian government is saying more than 200 people have been injured. some reports from the area put it as high as 400 or more. most of those, however, are not serious. they are mostly cuts and scratches from the glass. but a few people, we believe around nine or ten, have been sent to hospital for treatment. a very dramatic morning in this part of russia about four hours east of moscow. officials say they located a large part of the meteor that survived the earth's atmosphere in a lake in that region. >> wow. very dramatic and very scary. phil black, thank you very much. >>> ahead on "early start,
